Metabolic Synergy – 180 Capsules

A nationally prominent medical doctor specializing in blood sugar and endocrine health designed this multivitamin and mineral formula. Metabolic Synergy™helps maintain healthy glucose and insulin levels, while supporting the conversion of carbohydrates to be used for energy by providing nutrients for the TCA cycle. The magnesium, chromium, zinc, manganese, and vanadium are true chelates from Albion, the leader in the manufacture of mineral chelates with superior absorption.

Metabolic Synergy™ is an ideal formula for the metabolic syndrome patient – a patient who is becoming more prevalent in the health-care system. is multivitamin was originally designed by diabetes specialist Dr. Ron Rosedale, and was updated with the help of Dr. Bob Steinberg. It includes two more state-of-the-art, newly researched anti-glycating agents carnosine and
benfothiamine (a form of vitamin B1) to prevent diabetic complications. A few core nutrients have been added to make Metabolic Synergy™ a complete multivitamin mineral supplement for metabolic syndrome patients.
Metabolic syndrome is a condition many people risk developing by the time they reach middle age. It has aected 1 in 5 Canadians as of 2011 and rates continue to increase, with these patients requiring their own special therapeutic considerations. e factors that may lead to these conditions are:
• Excessive carbohydrate consumption, with especially damaging effects from fructose and galactose
• Excessive stored body fat, especially in the abdominal area, due to its active hormonal activity
• Nutrient deficiencies (inositol, chromium, vanadium, magnesium, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, taurine, vitamin C, vitamins B1, B2, B3)
• High oxidative stress, which depletes antioxidants
• Prolonged demand on the pancreas to produce insulin
• Excessive stress (high adrenaline and cortisol) A sustained program of lifestyle and diet changes combined with proper nutrient supplementation can correct most of the underlying causes of metabolic syndrome. e mineral forms of magnesium, chromium, zinc, manganese and vanadium are true chelates from Albion, the leader in the manufacture of mineral chelates with superior absorption.


600 mg lipoic acid + 4 mg biotin – prevents the typical reduction in carboxylase enzymes seen in research when lipoic acid is given alone. ese two nutrients together aid healthy insulin secretion and glucose metabolism.
• 600 mg taurine, 200mg EGCg from green tea and 400 IU vitamin D – all of which help increase insulin sensitivity
• 50 mg benfothiamine, 200 mg carnosine and 165 mg of vitamin E – to protect from neuropathy and kidney damage
• 3000 IU vitamin A – important for immune function which is compromised in metabolic syndrome patients
• 75 mg vitamin B1 (as thiamine HCL and benfothiamine) – needed for energy production
• 100 mcg molybdenum – needed for detoxication
• 400 mcg NatureFolateTM – proprietary blend of active isomer, naturally-occurring folates

Metabolic SynergyTM provides nutrients needed for the TCA (tricarboxylic acid) cycle. is cycle allows the body to burn food for energy by converting glucose into ATP. The more glucose burned, the less glucose in the bloodstream. Nutrients needed for the TCA cycle include magnesium, manganese and lipoic acid. Due to their insulin mimicking action, vanadium and magnesium help shuttle glucose inside cells where the TCA cycle occurs. ese two nutrients are also helpful for blood pressure regulation

Metabolic SynergyTM is protective against many complications associated with elevated glucose levels by reducing its ability to glycate proteins in the blood which in turn has damaging effects on the eyes, brain, and kidney. Lipoic acid, carnosine and benfothiamine have been proven to reduce the risk of neuropathy/retinopathy along with support from vitamin B6, B12 and high gamma vitamin E. This formula has multiple antioxidants for controlling the oxidative stress common in diabetics.

Excessive fructose consumption can lead to excessive glycation of proteins by as much as 16-fold and can also cause hypertension and impaired insulin function via reduced tyrosine phosphorylation. Metabolic SynergyTM reduces the damaging eects of fructose consumption through EGCg, zinc, and taurine.

The benefits of normalizing glucose, insulin, and leptin metabolism include: reduced risk of diabetes-related complications such as neuropathy, kidney or vision damage; lower cardiovascular risk such as lower blood pressure, triglycerides, increased HDL, better endothelial function; reduced cell proliferation and cancer prevention; less water retention; less fat storage and easier fat release from the adipose cells.
